CHILDREN from Rillington Pre-school have said a big thank you to Coastliner buses.

Heather Drabble, from the playgroup, said: “We were arranging a trip to develop the children’s knowledge of the local area and decided we would use the Coastliner bus service to get to the play park in Norton. When we approached the company to say we would be using the service, they very kindly said they would give us our own bus for the trip.

“It gave the children time to get on the bus, being able to sit upstairs, and on the bus we were able to talk about all the things we could see from the bus.

“It was a fantastic opportunity for the children, many of whom will not have been on a bus before.

“From the trip we are now going to introduce some bus journey role play and have painted a big cardboard bus blue to take our own trips in.”
